astoria recreation center/adult fitness Barre:

NEW! Sculpt & Stretch:

Sculpt and Stretch is the perfect class for anyone looking to achieve a lean and toned physique. Props like hand weights, resistance bands, body rings, blocks and weighted balls give you the benefit of a full-body workout, while improving flexibility and joint mobility.

TRX:

TRX suspension training takes a simplified approach to resistance training that includes bodyweight exercises which develops strength, balance, flexibility, and joint stability simultaneously using functional movements and dynamic positions. Learning these basic movements helps you to move better, feel better, and live better.

Zumba:

Zumba takes the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and world rhythms take over, you’ll see how effective and fun of an exercise this is. This is designed for everybody and very body. See why Zumba has taken the world by storm!

Cycling 360:

A great cycling class for beginners or those who like a little variety in their work out. New participants get used to the bike and the experienced cyclist gets a shorter cycling experience to do more abdominal strengthening. This class combines 35 minutes of cycling and then move into our fitness studio for 15 minutes of core on the floor, finishing with 5 minutes of deep stretching.

Child Care Available!

This summer only - Workout & bring the kids! M/W/F classes between 8am-4:30pm. Cost is $3/hour per child

Summer/Fall 2018

Barre classes use a combination of moves that incorporate ballet, yoga and Pilates. Barre exercises focus on isometric strength training combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. Barre helps increase flexibility by lengthening muscles. You don’t need to be a dancer (or have any dance skill) to gain benefits from barre classes.

Yoga:

A class designed to concentrate on physical health and mental well-being. This class combines posture, breathing techniques, and stretching exercises to unwind, and release tension, providing a good counterpoint to both busy lifestyles and cardio workouts with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind.

Boot Camp:

This class is designed for people who want a strong and healthy sweat, but no choreographed movements. Back-to-basic movement patterns, cardio interval drills and muscle endurance weight training produce an effective, calorie-burning workout. All levels of fitness are welcome, and the instructor will offer progressions and regressions as needed.

Core/Strength:

Walk taller, feel stronger! This class is designed to build core muscle groups while improving posture through performing a variety of exercises that strengthen the abdomen and back muscles and increase flexibility. The instructor may include a variety of equipment in this great work out. All levels of fitness are welcome, and the instructor will offer progressions and regressions as needed.

Pound! :

Channel your inner performer and rock your body with this modernday fusion of movement and music. Drum along a slammin’ soundtrack using Ripstix--weighted drumsticks designed to transform drumming into a kick-butt, fat burning, fullbody interval workout that will leave you dripping sweat.

Cycling:

This is a group exercise on stationary bikes. During the class, the instructor simulates a ride. Together, you travel on flat roads, climb hills, sprint, and race! It’s a truly fantastic cardiovascular class. All levels of fitness are welcome, and the instructor will offer progressions and regressions as needed.
